    Nothing. You know what twine is made of.

    Are you sure he ate it? Horses are usually pretty particular in what they eat, I cant imagine my horse getting ahold of twine and actually eating it.

    did he chew it up? If he chewed it up like most anything they eat I would imagine he will pass it fine.

    I still cant believe a horse would EAT twine, mine noses out his supplements out of his grain, so for him to eat something as large as twine I would see if there is some underlying reason why he would try to ingest that.

    Source(s): horse owner of a 24 yr old appy who is so smart he would take the twine and tie his 'brother' to the fence with it just to be a brat.

    How long ago did he eat the twine? Are you 100% positive that he swallowed it? Is he showing signs of colic?

    if a horse swallows stuff like that it can be deadly, horses cannot throw up so this could cause colic. call the vet immediately
